I enjoyed my time at UVA. The professors were engaging and appropriately challenged me. I enjoyed all of the extracurricular activities available. The campus is beautiful. Charlottesville is a small town and has grown a lot since I graduated in 2007. There are so many options for things to do off campus as well.

UVA is a school with a southern, colonial charm. It's a large enough public university that it gives you the opportunity to choose from a lot of fields to study.

This was a great program to obtain both my teaching certification and my Master's of Education. I was able to work, raise my children, and complete this program both in person and online.

A big school, but a close knit education community. Good professors. The education program gives the best experience you could hope for because they get you out in the classroom!

The University of Virginia provided a well-rounded education. I was exposed to lots of fields of study before deciding on a major. UVA is one of the top universities in the country, with beautiful Grounds and insightful faculty.

The relatively small program left for a very intimate and collaborative environment among students while also allowing us to develop close relationships with our mentors, who are leaders in the field of Kinesiology. Additionally, the program provided solid clinic experiences and opportunities which helped prepare me for medical school. On the down side, the resources and facilities were not the most ideal or for the particular program. Overall, it was a great program, with incredible people, in an awesome town.

The University of Virginia is currently, and has historically been, one of the leading PhD programs in the field of Kinesiology/Sports Medicine. The program has produced numerous graduates who have subsequently embarked on noteworthy career paths. The program excels at producing leading research in the field, allowing students flexibility in designing their class schedules, and exceptional graduate assistantships. The only drawback I can see in this program is the sheer amount of work that each student is involved in. If the student is able to successfully manage his or her time and prioritize commitments he or she will succeed in this prestigious program.
